West Point Oral History Project

The history department of the US Military Academy at West Point is in the process of creating a video oral history project. The West Point Center for Oral History was created to provide a video oral history repository that aims to document the military experience using video clips to document the stories of soldiers from different eras.The web page for the project states that:

  • The West Point Center for Oral History will be the premier oral history archive of the story of the American soldier, in both war and peace. It will serve as a powerful learning tool for West Point cadets and as an important research center for historians and the general public. Interview subjects will range from veterans of World War II through soldiers returning from the ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.
